Review by Reesh - Follow me on Twitter! I won't bite! Well, maybe a little - @MrReesh
Being born on the same day of the week as Juliyaa, a Thursday, I can't help but feel me and her share a very special bond, that of those lucky enough to not be born on a Monday but not quite lucky enough to be born on a Friday. However I will remain professional; no birth-day-of-the-week-favouritism – which is why I’m able to say that Stars N Dragons is not only average, but frustratingly average.
Now I like Juliyaa; her earlier songs Smile and The Rhythm have purchased some long term mortgage-free real estate on my iPod, which is why I was so confused by the quality of Stars N Dragons.

But then there’s the amazing ballad IWIHIA (I Wish I Had It All). Seriously bro: what the hell? It’s HERE, 5 out of 6 songs in that Juliyaa shows you that she can really sing, write and deliver, and very quickly this becomes the song you switch to whenever Stars N Dragons pokes its head out from shuffle on your mp3 player. In fact, the song is of such high quality it sounds bizarre amongst the other average Joe songs, causing you to feel a little frustrated that the rest of the songs aren’t up to the standard this one sets.
